OHISHI VG10 DAMASCUS TSUCHIME
This series of knives use VG10 super steel, a hard stainless-steel core that is surrounded by 15 layers of “Damascus” steel with the “Hammered” Tsuchime finish and suminagashi （floating ink） Damascus above the edge of the blade . These knives have been designed for the discerning chef who wants a high-performing knife that is a true work of the blacksmith's art.
The Core of these knives is VG10 super steel that has been hardened to HRC61-62, this ensures that the blade will take and hold an extremely sharp edge. The cladding is 17 layers of softer “Damascus” stainless steel that has been finished in the Suminagashi-Tsuchime style. This “Hammered” / Tsuchime finish creates an effect like a “Granton Edge” or dimpled edge that assists the knife to move easily through food and helps the food fall away from the side of the knife.
The blade is also forged with a closed bolster that join to the Pakka wood handle ensuring the knife is sealed from dirt and water. The Pakka wood handle is mahogany toned attached with triple riveted tang.
